I wonder how they'll manage to build above it without interrupting the traffic flow? Meh, it's so ugly I feel horrible that something nice and modern will rise above such a decrepit building. But, maybe they'll reclad it? Let's hope so...
I hate that building on Front...it got the absolute worse reno...I remember they just stuck a few gree-painted steel "awnings" on it, and cut out a few windows...and then brought is cheezy theme restos like Olive Garden or some similar shit. It got even worse right away, as all that shit strted to rust after one winter.
If this site is just too important, then they should just move the proposal to across the street with a similar ugly building with a Jack Astors in it. I was walking on Front St. today and I noticed it. There's plenty of room too, there's like 2 parking lots right next to it.
BTW: Mr Man, how exactly do you know that this is a Freedom Tower like tower?
An estimate calculation with a calculator says that this tower would be somewhere around 557 ft. I hope that this tower starts rising in this decade, its where we need a tall tower in our skyline, between Simcoe Place and the main cluster.
